Grammy award winning music ensemble Eighth Blackbird presents an adaptation of the Lunar New Year tale The Great Zodiac Animal Race, performed by puppeteer Tom Lee. This puppet performance retells the classic Lunar New Year zodiac tale with shadow puppet animals inspired by Asian languages and pictograms, described as suitable for all ages. 

Puppeteer Tom Lee previously performed in productions including War Horse at Lincoln Center Theater, as a principal puppeteer in the late Anthony Minghella’s production of Madama Butterfly at the Metropolitan Opera, and directed the puppetry for the Giants Are Small production of Petrushka with the New York Philharmonic. He was also a puppeteer in Le Grand Macabre with the NY Philharmonic at Avery Fisher Hall, Hiroshima Maiden and Disfarmer on tour as well as at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, and Lee Breuer’s epic puppet opera La Divina Caricatura at La MaMa, among numerous other performances.
